Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
Round filter clogs often
\015 Is it normal to have to clean the round filter that sits under the cylclone about everytime that I use it? It seems to clog with very fine dust and really limits the suction.\015
The Flange in question is about one inch tall and and approx 4 inches circular ..... When you pull the canister (container to empty) off and empty the contents in the trash .... some of us tap it to get the excess out or off the sides ..... That Flange is the rubber piece attached to the bottom of the darker gray cylinder inside the canister you are emptying. When you tap the canister or after dumping it numerous times that flange can work itself (slide) up the darker gray cylinder ...... it needs to be slid downward and overlap the bottom when you close the canister from dumping it. You can remove the flange and see the grooves .... replace it back on with it hanging off a little to allow for overlap. That should decrease the amount of excess being trapped in the filter. Hope this helps.
The problem you have is when you were emptying the container

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation. I cleaned the micro filter (between bag & motor) via brush & hitting against wall & seems / looks quite clean. I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often. Even after a long rest (say overnight) it still won't start, then ano

I recently bought an upright MC-E4061 and have a problem with the paper filter clogging prematurely, it needs weekly cleaning. The filter clogs too easily with the main plastic bowl having very little debris! Our older panasonic, used daily, is not problematic. Please could you advise as the paper filter is time consuming to clear.

Kenmore progressive upright filter is being bypassed, clogging screen at outlet. Tried new filter, no change. 7 or 8 passes with the vacuum and the screen at outlet gets clogged.

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through. Primary filter is clean and HEPA filter is replaced. Even when everything is unclogged, suction is weak compared to another unit (same model) that a friend has. Any ideas?

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full. Smoke started to come out - smelling of burnt paper, not rubber. So switched off. It did not blow the fuse, and may be OK. I wish to inspect it. How do I open it up? Alos I have an air filter and a motor filter for it. I have often changed the air filter on the top. How do I get at the motor filter, if there is one? Than

Hello- my motor filter is becoming clogged every time i use it. i have removed and washed it--I thought maybe i didn't have the lid closed tight enough but for some reason dirt is pouring into the filter, it seems that some of the dirt suctioned is actually being pulled into the filter intead of the canister
One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cy ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a cb9191j-10a vacuum that works fine but I am really disappointed by the small screw-on filter that quickly clogs up with dust and debris. There must be a larger type filter that could be used and this would make for a really fine vacuum. Could you suggest an alternative filter?
I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is. The problem is that the vacuum part itself (the part that touches the floor and rolls over) has ejected its filter that we can see through the little window- it just came out under the rollers under the device... we cannot see how to re-insert this piece of filter which looks like a kind of round, flat grey foam/fabric and clearly goes inside- (top of the part that touches the flo

Clogged Bissell After debris clears the brush part, it gets clogged at the point of entrance into the machine, barely anything makes it through the filter and into the canister. Clogs immediately after a few swipes of the carpet. Had vacuum for almost 3 years.
Something must be in the hose causing a clog, take the hose off and if suction is good where the hose hooks up, then there is something caught inside the hose. ... Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum
Filters have been clogged with wet cat litter and now the vac will turn on but shuts off and wont cont to vaccume. can we clean/rinse the filter out. filter light has come on and then turns off once the vac shuts down.. thanks
Using a vacuum cleaner for wet cat litter??? Not a good idea at the best of times! The machine's cutting out because it's overheating. You don't tell us the make or model of your machine - some filters are washable, many are not. Your user manual sho ... Vacuums
I have a Dyson Animal DC 28. It vacuums fine on floor mode, but, when locked in the upright position it releases pressure though the little valve behind filter a. I have only had it for 2 weeks so I'm hoping the filters don't need to be cleaned this often! I would like to finish vacuuming without waiting 24hrs for the filters to dry.
Unfortunately with any bagless vacuum the filters do need to be cleaned or replaced very frequently for the vacuum to perform. But the good news is it sounds like you have a clog in the hose. remove the attachment hose as you would be using it and un ... Vacuums
Filters I have tried to find the filter that goes up inside the vacumm not the one on the front but when you take the disposal thing out the one that is up inside that, where do I find one? mine does not have one and everything clogs up in there.

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin. I've checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.
Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...
